‘Prometheus’ trailer: Ridley Scott is back to scare your pants off

The first trailer for “Prometheus,” Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi and sorta, kinda “Alien” prequel, has been released.

There’s barely any dialogue in the trailer, save for what sounds like radio communication (“I was wrong. I was so wrong,” a woman says) and screams. (Screams count, right?)

Instead, the one-minute clip relies on stunning images of spaceships and a desolate planet, the actors looking terrified/pained, a title screen very similar to “Alien’s” and, as Slate’s Browbeat blog so helpfully pointed out, a noise akin to the “Inception” “brrm.”

The film, opening in June, stars the original “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Noomi Rapace, as well as Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and recent Golden Globe nominee Idris Elba. Watch the trailer below.
